A fictional authoritarian government implements Humanitarian Eugenics. Low income adults who conceive children get extra taxes that year. High income adults who raise children get a tax break every year. The intent is to have more children in safer and more plentiful environments.

@nexech While well-intentioned, the administration failed to consider n-order effects; within a few generations, their policies had strictly stratified society and created semi-permanent castes, with poor parents often choosing to give their children up for "adoption"; both to give their progeny a chance at a better life, but also for a cut of the new parents' tax break.
